Activity 1:

To understand rhyme in poetry

[lo 3.2.1]

In this exercise, we are not only going to test your knowledge of rhyming words , but we are also going to see how quickly you can identify the rhyming words. This is a wonderful poem about a whale but you need to complete it by filling the words below into the correct spaces. Your educator will tell you when to begin and when to stop.

Good luck!

Assessment

LO 3
READING AND VIEWING The learner will be able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.
3.3 reads for information:
3.3.2 scans graphs, timetables, etc. for specific information;
3.3.3 summarises a paragraph (e.g. identifies the main point and the topic sentence);
3.7 reads for pleasure:
3.7.5 solves word puzzles.

Memorandum

Rhyming words are the focus of the following activity. Learners are required to complete a poem by filling the words that are missing. As an added challenge, the exercise must be timed to assess how quickly the learners can identify the words. Learners with a good understanding of rhyming words will be able to complete the entire poem in the allotted time. Learners who are battling with the concept of rhyming words will not be able to find the correct words and will therefore not complete the poem in the allotted time. The Assessment Chart at the end of the activity will also help you with the assessment.

Before allowing learners to start the activity, discuss rhyming words with them. Ask them to give you some examples of words that rhyme. Once you are happy that you have revised this concept, let them start the activity with a time limit. (no more than 5 minutes.) After the allotted time, take their workbooks in for marking. Once the books have been marked, it is important that they complete the activity. Allow more time for this. Learners may now work in partners and compare answers so that those who need a bit more time to consolidate the concept may learn from their peers.

The poem should be completed as follows:

I'd like to tell you now the TALE ,

Of Willowby, the lovesick WHALE,

Who felt his life was getting STALE ,

For want of his own young WHALE ,

There wasn't anyone to BLAME ,

That he could never find a DAME ,

He didn't fly into a RAGE ,

Instead, he sought the ocean SAGE ,

Who organised a whale PARADE ,

To see if Willowby made the GRADE ,

With a lovely lady whale called JADE ,

Whose beauty wouldn't ever FADE ,

The route the whale parade would TAKE ,

Would pass up through a deep sea LAKE ,

The sage was sure Jade's lovely SHAPE ,

Would make young Willowby's whale mouth GAPE ,

And sure enough, her beauty RARE ,

Made Willowby both stop and STARE ,

He flipped for joy and made a WAVE ,

And took Jade with him to his CAVE ,

And swam about in happy DAZE ,

His dear Jade never left his GAZE ,

In calmest days or in a GALE ,

Of whales, he was the happiest MALE .
